Preach. I am 5'4 and do not typically recline my seat, so I don't really have a dog in this fight. But what makes the whole argument so odd for me is that it's almost impossible to make an argument for either side without sounding like a hypocrite, mainly because no matter which side you come down on, it comes down… » 8/29/14 10:44am Friday 10:44am

I disagree. A lot of sexist or racist things are done simply out of ignorance. And while you can't force people to think about their actions, you can always ask them to. I grew up in a really homogenous environment, and as such absorbed some pretty racist beliefs. It wasn't until someone told me that my words or… » 8/28/14 2:58pm Thursday 2:58pm

I've been there several times, and this was always my opinion as well (and I speak fluent French). Paris sort of reminds me of New York in the way that people aren't necessarily rude, but they sort of just don't have time for your foolishness. People in Paris were never quite as nice to me as people in the… » 8/28/14 12:23pm Thursday 12:23pm

I think the brewery gets a lot of shit because Boulevard was one of its most popular beers for so long, and if you've ever had an actual wheat beer, Boulevard is...lacking. (However if, like college me, you had never had an actual wheat beer, then Boulevard is pretty delicious.) My brother recently told me that… » 8/27/14 2:11pm Wednesday 2:11pm

Actually in some planes, it's extremely difficult to turn around and ask anyone anything. I was on a Southwest flight two days ago, and someone was kicking my seat. In order to see who was kicking the back of my seat, I would have had to take of my seatbelt and turn around with my knees on the seat in order to even… » 8/27/14 1:54pm Wednesday 1:54pm

I think the major reason they have family boarding is so that families can find seats together. On Southwest flights (which I take quite a bit), people fill up the window/aisle seats really fast, and often there aren't two or three seats together, let alone 5, for families to sit together. And at the end of the day,… » 8/26/14 12:42pm 8/26/14 12:42pm

I've been trying a lot of black IPAs lately, having recently discovered that I really like them (such a nice combination of flavors!). Lagunitas NightTime is my favorite so far, but I'll have to check out Stone's offering. Thanks for the assist! » 8/26/14 12:39pm 8/26/14 12:39pm

I posted on FB last night that I genuinely think they could make the Emmys 1000x more watchable if they limited how many of the major categories each show could win (say, 2) and made a rule that shows couldn't win Best X more than 2 years in a row. I know that's not "fair", but it would make the show infinitely more… » 8/26/14 11:57am 8/26/14 11:57am

I don't know if people are doing a very good job explaining it by saying "It's in the book." It is in the book, but the nakedness in this particular sequence is extremely, extremely important. In the context of the scene, it is absolutely vital that she be naked, otherwise one of the defining moments in Cersei's… » 8/25/14 3:02pm 8/25/14 3:02pm

This day was about 1300 calories (less for the Inspector since the snack at the end wasn't eaten). If you're doing even a moderate amount of physical activity, that's on the low side of how many calories you should be ingesting (speaking generally, of course, not for each individual person). For a plan to lose… » 8/25/14 11:30am 8/25/14 11:30am
